The Letter of Saint Paul to the Ephesians    4: 1-6

4:1 And so, as a prisoner in the Lord, I beg you to walk in a manner worthy of the vocation to which you have been called:
4:2 with all humility and meekness, with patience, supporting one another in charity.
4:3 Be anxious to preserve the unity of the Spirit within the bonds of peace.
4:4 One body and one Spirit: to this you have been called by the one hope of your calling:
4:5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
4:6 one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in us all.


The Holy Gospel to Luke     12: 54-59

12:54 And he also said to the crowds: “When you see a cloud rising from the setting of the sun, immediately you say, ‘A rain cloud is coming.’ And so it does.
12:55 And when a south wind is blowing, you say, ‘It will be hot.’ And so it is.
12:56 You hypocrites! You discern the face of the heavens, and of the earth, yet how is it that you do not discern this time?
12:57 And why do you not, even among yourselves, judge what is just?
12:58 So, when you are going with your adversary to the ruler, while you are on the way, make an effort to be freed from him, lest perhaps he may lead you to the judge, and the judge may deliver you to the officer, and the officer may cast you into prison.
12:59 I tell you, you will not depart from there, until you have paid the very last coin.”
